I got the idea from Room and Board for this media console. I change the leg style, made the face frame to be beaded with inset doors and drawers. The middle door was suppose to be two wood doors but I changed it to one glass door with a flemish style glass. That way the remotes would work for the tv components, without having to buy an expensive remote. Last was to use soft closing ball bearing drawer guides on all four drawer so they don’t slame with all the movies and other items in them.

The hardest part of this project is the inset door and drawers due to any difference in spacing is going to be noticable.

Thanks for looking.

Nice work, very clean lines. Is it cherry or maple? Great finish as well. If you have a second take a look at my TV console. Slightly different in overall design ( I was after a mission style) but it looks like the dimensions are similar , six legs for added support, and glass door inserts to accommodate the remotes.
